Have you ever wondered why one person does well on a plant-based diet, paleo diet or ketogenic diet, while another person feels horrible on the diet? The answer lies in your genes.


Nutrigenomics is the science of how dietary factors affect your genes. Nutrigenomic testing helps you understand how foods affect your metabolism and can explain why saturated fat may be metabolized well for one person, but cause high blood sugar, weight gain and inflammation in another. Genetic testing can indicate if you have a higher need for certain vitamins, minerals, and compounds, while also shedding light on toxin and drug sensitivities. These results allow us to create a plan that is specific to your genetic blueprint. 


Genetics and biochemistry help us discover

how we are different, and what we can do to

potentially overcome disease susceptibilities

through the understanding of epigenetics

and applying it to our diet, lifestyle, and environment. Nutrigenomic Testing and the Nutrition Genome Report provides clinically relevant information to help us discover how we are different, and learn what we can do to potentially overcome disease susceptibilities through the understanding of how genes are impacted by diet, lifestyle, and your environment.
